Please welcome Henry Huie Jung M.Ed, Ed.D, (University of Mass., Amherst), Somerville, MA.

Mr. Jung is the author of Chinese Heroes of the American Civil War: Blue & Gray.

He is self-proclaimed as not being a "Civil War buff" as such, but the participation of Chinese men in this very major American event attracted his attention (he had served in the U.S. military--Vietnam).  Mr. Jung's doctoral dissertation (1985) was on Chinese-American men and "kung-fu" movies.

His first knowledge of one Chinese soldier, Edward Day Cohota, was last year when he and his wife visited the Cape Ann Museum in Gloucester, MA---there was a photo of the middle-aged Cohota and his elderly adopted father in the room displaying the wealthy Day family memories.

Mr. Jung will also talk about his presentation at Somerville Public Library on April 11th.

I hope you join us for this significant discussion.
